British Royal Family

And that's a wrap! The Cambridges wave goodbye to Canada

The Cambrdiges' first royal tour as a family of four has come to an end!

Prince William, Duchess Catherine, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have paid a fond farewell to their host nation.
On Saturday, the royal family made their final public appearance as they boarded a seaplane at Victoria Harbour Airport at around 4:00pm to make their way back to London, England.
As usual, it was Prince George's mischievous antics that won hearts.
WATCH: George waves to the crowds in the player above!
The three-year-old knows how to work the crowds!
But he wasn't interested in any high-fives or handshakes...
Luckily Duchess Catherine stepped in to greet the well-wisher.
The three-year-old was eager to show off his royal wave to the cheering audiences and the louder they whooped, the more enthusiastic George's wave became.
But like most kids his age, George seems to have a quick attention span and he grew bored quickly.
Later, a young boy gifted the family with a bunch of flowers and attempted a high-five with George.
Unfortunately it was a case of history repeating itself, and similar scenes to when Justin Trudeau tried the same trick played out!
A nonchalant George simply turned his back on the boy but luckily Duchess Catherine saved the day and presented her hand for a regal shake.

The family have spent eight days in Canada.
George looked very unimpressed with the seaplane.
The young Prince looked well and truly ready to get back to the comfort of Anmer Hall as he pressed his unimpressed face up against the plane's window.
Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte was in great spirits as she tried out her royal wave with the guidance of her proud mum.
The 16-month-old flashed her toothy grin and looked adorable in a floral dress and a maroon cardigan.
On Thursday, the royal siblings attended their first official engagement together at a children's party for military families.
At the event, the world watched on as Charlotte took her first steps and spoke her first words "dada" and "pop" in public.
This mother-daughter duo are simply divine.
Following the week-long tour, The Duke and The Duchess released a message of thanks to their host nation via social media.
"Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week," their note began.
"We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person. We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. "
"This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit."
"Canada is a country of optimism, generosity and unrivalled natural beauty. I hope we have helped all Canadians celebrate what makes this country great. We will see you again soon."
Charlotte has charmed Canada, and the world.
They've made memories to last a lifetime!
